So I came across a video by a couple of physical therapists that explained how stretching is a waste of time unless it addresses a specific issue. These guys were thorough, had a bullet point reference on the matter and explained each point clearly. While I somewhat agree with the science of it all, I vehentmently disagree on the holistic side of it.

Are you guilty of this? Yes. Me Too. Holding the phone for minutes or sometimes an hour or so while looking through missed calls, responding to email messages or maybe watching too many cat videos. The unintended effect is the dreaded Android Elbow. This results from deep flexion through the elbow and wrist that mimic the same pain caused by Tennis Elbow. The mobile phone is a blessing and curse in this technological age. What can you do to minimize or stop the pain?

I have over twenty years of experience in fitness, and my opinion is that you should only stretch muscles that are too tight, shortened from too much flexion, or otherwise imbalanced. You should get a functional movement assessment from a fitness professional to determine which muscles are short and tight.  Those muscles are the ones you should stretch before and after exercise.  You can stretch them every day, and once a day is enough.

A few ramblings all newsletter style.Read up on what I think is a forgotten calf stretch (at least I don't see anyone doing it) a new toy I bought myself and a GREAT recipe for the vegetables lovers. I made this dish the other night with some roasted chicken and Mmmm mmm! My wife loved it, I loved it and my two Pugs may have gotten a piece of carrot or two.

            And the answer is clear…as mud. Back in the day, you would see everyone stretch before taking part in an activity. Life was good. Then, those darn scientists had to get involved with all their studies and facts and then people just got confused.

Let’s face it…sitting at a desk all day is no fun. Not only is it no fun, it is dangerous! Yikes…sorry to lay that one on you but it’s true. There are as many health risks associated with sitting all day as there are for smoking and being over-weight. Wow…I just brought the mood down a ton.

Many people don't warm up--or don't warm up thoroughly--before exercise.  I think a part of the reason why is that they don't understand why you do it.  Today I'm going to talk about how and why to warm up. A number of things happen when you warm up: Joints move through a full range of motion.
